    couldn't agree more with previous comments, not only the final game, but throughout the tournament currie's defense was incredible, her energy infectious, and her play dominant. with every game, every time she was subbed in, she changed the game. doesnt matter who didnt notice in the stands, i guarantee opposing coaches know who she is, and am sure that her teammates were greatful they only had to match with her in practice.......

    I am a huge Layton fan and supporter! Layton gals played a great game and our city proud of them. I must agree with the earlier comment from JumpinJack regarding Currie. It was her defense that created numerous turnovers on us. When she was in, she teamed up with Smith to trap the offence and denied the her opponent the ball. It was a hard loss, but what better team to go up against for the State title. Congrats to Riverton and their coaches.

    I am surprised there wasn't more in this story on Jamie Smith and Kylie Currie. They were a huge reason that Riverton won this championship. They caused Layton a ton of problems. They may not have a ton of stats, but both of them came through with big free throws and baskets when it counted. They played great defense and caused Layton to turn the ball over. You could really tell when they were out of the game. Even though Riverton won, I am proud of Layton's performance and especially beating the undefeated Bingham. They make their school and community proud.
